Boko Haram denies respect for human dignity, says PACE President

"We must keep up our efforts to denounce the actions of the Nigerian group Boko Haram, which denies the basic principle of respect for human dignity. The threat made by the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, to enslave more than 200 girls still held by the group is unacceptable," said Anne Brasseur, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council Europe (PACE), speaking today on behalf of the members of the Standing Committee meeting in Baku.
